About Me: I am a Therapist at Chapa-De Indian Health in Grass Valley. I graduated from California State University, Sacramento. My practice includes many years of experience working in an integrated setting, like the one used at Chapa-De. I specialize in modern social work theories. This includes a focus in strength-based perspective and positive psychology, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-focused brief therapy. I have a passion for providing mental health services to people living in our rural County and surrounding communities. My primary focus is working with underserved populations.
I always say that my patients are the unsung heroes. I have great admiration for their courage and abilities to grow through vulnerabilities. I dedicate my time to creating and nurturing relationships through modeling compassion and kindness. I believe that we are all connected. I also believe we can only care for others after we have first cared for ourselves. My personal interests focus on the health and well-being of my family and friends. I enjoy spending time in the Sierra Nevada mountains reviving in nature near the streams and the lakes.
